Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami
Murakami has written an intricate labyrinth with this novel. The characters are rich and interesting. I won’t go as far as to say they’re very relatable, but they’re agreeable. Kafka lives between worlds. But these worlds are not built on the tradition of English literature, rather these worlds follow ideas that are more likely to be found in Latin America. These are the ambiguous, fuzzy worlds of Comala or Macondo. In the end, the interwoven settings, the intersection of minds result in a spiraling, ever deepening labyrinth. The sphinxes you find along the journey provide plenty of questions. And in these questions, the reader is invited to find insight.
